Last Words


Now I am gone


How my last words


And how they

Live on

Like an echo

Bouncing off itself

Live on my love

Yes live on

In your lilac


Lace and lapis world

Of oh so many blues

Now I am gone

It matters not

My pulse shall

Still dance tho

In the high domes

Of Cathedrals

Where the white dove

Circles in frayed sunlight

By day it does

At least and roosts

At night

Burn no more candles tho

My love

For I am blinded

By their light and

Still shadows

Dare not

Mark or pave the way

For this pilgrims feet

    A truly poetic farewell. Yes some goodbyes linger for they are a lost battle of the heart and wounds take their time to heal.
    I particularly like the way your pulse will dance on into high and wonderful places. Life goes on and has wonders yet to come.
